Austinrenowned for its literate populationrelies on just a handful of independent bookstores
Seems like independent bookstoresmaybe even all bookstoresare endangered.
Who knows, eventually there might come a day when people don't remember the joy of browsing the shelves, leafing through a book, cherishing the touch of the pages, the aroma of the bindery glue, the sound of the riffle, the art of the book designer.
Happily, that time hasn't arrived yet.
Blue Awning Books is a relatively new store: we just celebrated our first birthday. We provide Austinites a locally owned, independent used-and-rare bookshop. We offer thousands of rare, out-of-print and gently used books: fiction and non-fiction, hardcover and paperback. Our customers stop by our store, or order from us from anywhere in the world.
When you visit our store, you can remember what you love about books and bookstores. Spend a few minutes with us, and we hope you'll agree: Blue Awning Books is a used bookstore that Austin can be proud of.
